    New window wont open on top....

    Help!!! For some strange reason, My laptop using Vista Home 32bit started acting up.....when I have windows(pages) already open, and I open a new window, this new window opens below(behind) the current window. This happens with IE7, as well as ACeeDsee viewer. When I am viewing a JPEG thru ACeeDsee, and click on edit, the edit window also opens behind, and not on top....so frustrating....someone out there ....please help me!!! Thanks so much!!!

    open up "computer" click on the organise button (top right) go to folder and search options.
    press open each folder in same window, hit apply, then change back to your original (im guessing) open each folder in its own window. hit apply.
    try it out.
    if that doesnt work click restore defaults> apply.
    if that doesnt work restart your pc as a process is running in the background (probably an update service that requires a restart in order to resolve itself)
    tell me if it helped, if not, we'll go from there

    Hello d3aths3rver!!
    Thanks for your help!......I just figured out that this problem only exist when I am using ACDsee.....not only does the edit ACDsee window open behind said image window...but I cannot maximize any bottom taskbar tab.....I have to minimize ACDsee in order to view any other open programs....so, it's an ACDsee problem....any ideas? I may have to re-install ACDsee.....Thanx again!!

    maybe look for some updates for your software, this can help.

    Actually no, look in the options tab, it will be somewhere where it will be ticked "show on top of all other windows" or something similar, untick it and your problem will go away
